Happy Thanksgiving Day Friends! Welcome!
Today is the beginning of a very special season of the year.
In case you missed out THIS TIME, I have signed up a group of about 100 women who are walking together though the Christmas story found in the Bible book of Luke.
If you didn’t make it into the group (it closed on 11/15) you can still join us and get the goodies on Facebook and Periscope. I will be sharing a newLIFE UNSTUCK online product that I am releasing in January and you don’t want to miss it!
PLUS–just because you missed the group doesn’t mean you can win a Christmas Prize! Say hello below, on Facebook or on Periscope and sign up for my newsletter and be entered to win a pair of CUTE CHRISTMAS BOOTS!
Todays group devotions focused on Luke went like this—
DAY 1: November 26, 2015
1 Many have undertaken to draw up an account of the things that have been fulfilled[a] among us, 2 just as they were handed down to us by those who from the first were eyewitnesses and servants of the word. 3 With this in mind, since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, I too decided to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, 4 so that you may know the certainty of the things you have been taught.
Luke 1:1-4 (NIV)
Whenever I drag the heavy plastic bin that holds 30 years worth of my old prayer journals from under my bed, blow the layer of dust off the top and crack open the lid, my HEART does that funny dance between terror and delight. You may know the feeling; It’s like what happens when you ride Space Mountain at Disney for the first time. My mind always reviews my options -burn these and let all this “stuff” stay between me and Jesus OR keep saving them as a raw record of “the things that have been fulfilled…so that you may know.”
Memories hold such a personal place. My family always teases me about the stories I share in my books and my speeches. They always remember things differently than I do. The truth is likely somewhere in the middle.
In these familiar verses Dr. Luke, the author of this book of the Bible, goes on record with his version of the birth and infancy of Jesus as it was handed down to him. This is the longest book of the Gospels and is essentially written from Mary’s perspective. Dr. Luke was a student of truth and details and presents a beautiful narrative of, not only the birth of Jesus but, his boyhood and launch into ministry. Luke introduces Jesus as “The Son of Man” and shares His prayer life, healing touch and His compassion for the lost and hurting.
My hope with 30 Days To An Unstuck Christmas is that we take a FRESH and RENEWED look at these very familiar passages.
